    This Fender Champion is dated to 1954 & remains in brilliant condition considering it's over 60s years old!
    With a Telecaster style layout, controls are single volume & tone, with the volume in easy reach of the covered bridge, making it easy to perform volume swells. It's fitted with a single Telecaster style, bridge position type pickup which provides a fantastic tone with a snappy attack & zingy treble response!
    It comes with its original cable & hardcase! The hardcase still with 3 working latches & carry handle & in very good condition, showing a little wear but certainly far from anything that could be considered abused.
    Please note the tuning posts/machines are original - however, the ivoroid buttons are not original, they have been replaced by the previous owner once the originals became unusable due to age. Also included is the original cable, also still in good working order.
